A delightful story by Laura Baker, illustrated with warmth and humour by Sandra de la Prada, that celebrates reading in all its forms.
Books take us on journeys that we can all share,
And give us the power to go anywhere....
So no matter just how, or what book,
or your speed, what I wish for NOW . . .
Is that YOU love to read!
This fantastic book inspires ALL children to find their own wonderful way of reading. Little bookworms who love A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston, Wolves by Emily Gravett and Books Always Everywhere by Jane Blatt and Sarah Massini will adore All the Wonderful Ways to Read.
Laura Baker reads from All the Wonderful Ways to Read
Books take us on journeys that we can all share, and give us the power to go anywhere! In this beautiful story Laura and Sandra have managed to encapsulate the variety of places you could read, adventures that you could go on with wonderful rhyming text and spell binding illustrations. The wonderful animal illustrations add an extra dimension drawing the reader in.
I can see the text and images from All the Wonderful Ways to Read being the inspiration for libraries, classroom book corners and children's bedrooms for years to come. This is a wonderful text which needs to be shared with every child at a young age and would be perfect to use on World Book day in a classroom or as inspiration for assemblies. One of my favourite books at the moment. An absolute pleasure to read.

Love reading? Or are you not sure that reading is for you.. or that you are doing it right.. or maybe you think you're getting too old! (GASP!) Then this beautifully illustrated and creative picture book is a must. Whether you choose to read a whole book, flick through pictures, read quickly or slowly then it's ok. However, wherever and whatever you choose, there are many adventures awaiting you and giving you the power to go anywhere, escaping the chaos of the world.
All the Wonderful Ways to Read is a great book to use with all children to engage and enthuse them about reading. And as we fast approach World Book Day, it is the perfect resource to introduce any activities and challenges that may be coming up.. I wonder who will read in the most unusual place? And as the author sums up perfectly at the end… 'No matter just how, or what book, or your speed, what I wish for NOW… Is that YOU love to read!'
